"Looking at himself, he knows that not one word he pronounces is his own."
Why is your shit so goddamn fun to read? What the fuck?
>It is the portrait of our narcissistic ruling class—which, like Hitler at the end of Downfall, was issuing complex, detailed battle orders to an army which did not even exist. It really is worth skimming the whitepaper to see the spectacular level of delusion involved.
Holy shit that line was amazing
is substack giving you data on what % of people read up to what % of the article? if so, you should turn that shit off :P
this was otherwise delightful, thank you for publicly humiliating everybody I despise
Curtis you’re just so fucking good.
Funny that it was this article that made me succumb to the grift ...
Also known as "How Weyl got Pwned"
Fine, fine - take my money please.
If a genius is born every minute, one must be destroyed every two.
Academic markets require a big idea + slogan that can be turned into a franchise that everyone gets and no one disagrees with too much. If you think too much you don't tenure.
These have been some spicy poasts lately. Very enjoyable reads.
I really hope we can stop doing this at some point though:
"So: test everyone who could have the virus, and lock them up for two weeks. Fact: China did this. Fact: it worked for China."
Indeed, Chinese numbers never lie. Just like those rice harvest quotas: totally accurate and not fabricated.
Holy words. Truth in every angle. Also *the most righteous takedown I have ever read*. I cannot agree with every paragraph in here or UR, but maybe it is only because I have not had the balls to even test the strength of my own iron. I envy the path and age that made CY, but I WILL henceforth make it a habit to stop backing down.
I'm disappointed that Scott Alexander was left unmolested here—Weyl is a nobody, unworthy of your attention. You have bigger fish to fry.
Wonderful. Perhaps us lowly subs could form a detached, nihilist union of sorts and through the gift of quadratic voting give you one of these scumbag intellectuals to take down once per month - Noah and Glen were delightful, who next?
Curtis can't stop throwing these haymakers! Who will he body next??
I don’t get Moldbug’s passivism. He has been really showing off his pugilistic prowess of late against all comers.
For the first 3 months of this substack, I thought I was making a charitable donation. Now, I’m spending all my free time consuming these essays.
I suspected Scott was reading you when the phrase "Russell conjugations" showed up on AC10.
Nice to know it's mutual.
And yeah, holy shit, "not moist". The more soulless the writer, the more his efforts resemble those funny AI essay generators... hey, there's an idea. maybe in the future we can stop being ruled by human experts and just go with whatever the postmodernism generator recommends
Glen named Curtis a year ago here: https://twitter.com/glenweyl/status/1212623511094779905 I have no fucking clue what he is talking about in the thread and based on the reaction from twitter, no one else does either. I will be curious to see if Glen responds to this...
